Mobile device management with Microsoft 365

What is mobile device management for Microsoft 365?

Mobile devices have played a huge role in helping employees work from anywhere, anytime by allowing them to access files, emails, contacts, etc. Letting employees use corporate-owned mobile devices for work purposes can mean allowing employees to access resources from external networks when they are not in the office premises. This makes it difficult for the IT teams to maintain data security.

The mobile device management (MDM) feature in Microsoft 365 is a great solution that helps reduce this complexity for mobile devices. Microsoft 365 device management allows administrators to monitor, protect, and secure their organization's resources and data on various devices.

Microsoft 365's MDM feature allows you to:

  • Secure mobile devices in your organization by forcing encryption to enable and disable screenshots and enforcing users to use a code to unlock them.
  • Wipe all data from a device as and when required for security measures.
